Presentation Tips

Presentation Tips

When advocating for your organization in five minutes, planning is essential.  The following are some talking points that may help you prepare your presentation.

  1.  Start with a gripping opening line – For example “75 women in our community are involved in a domestic violence dispute every month….”
  2. State your name and the name of the organization you would like to receive the funding.
  3. Share what the mission/purpose of the organization is.
  4. Describe the program that you would like to be funded.  Provide some background information, if possible.
  5. Identify who the funds will impact and how.  Include numbers you serve.
  6. 6.     Tell how essential this program is and what our community will miss if this program does not get funded.
  7. Explain the measurements that will be used to ensure the success of this program and good use of the donation.
  8. Share what this donation will “buy” for our community.
  9. End with a heartfelt request and a thank you.

To be eligible, the organization you advocate must be a 501(c)(3) non-profit or a government entity.  Non-profit organizations affiliated with religious organizations are also eligible as long as their services address a societal need and are not restricted based upon religious affiliation.   To check on the organization’s non-profit status, call Elaine Peck with the Putnam County Community Foundation.

The organization must be proposed by a member of the 100 Women Who Care.  Only local organizations will be considered.
